    Mercedes VGT Max Power Maximum top speed gearing. Will smoke the competition or the dodge viper. same as above full power upgrades tweak gearbox to top speed settings. Its all plain sailing after that. If you haven't passed all the competition before the top of the bridge, then there is something wrong with ya.

    That works, too, but you'll only be going about 255 MPH without slipstreaming. I use the Black Edition for the event.
    The Ford GT goes 288 MPH.

    I use this event for farming credits and for tuning cars for Wangan lobbies. I've got a whack load of cars tuned that can easily win this race.

    Pretty much any car that can cruise at 240mph or higher without drafting can win this race without much effort. The fastest cars you go against top out around 230mph.

    I'm not in front of my PS3 right now, but if you let me know what cars you're interested in, I'll see if I have a tune. If I don't, I can help you build one quickly.

    The R35 can definitely win these races with ease.

    For the minimum credit game we used a McLaren F1 with:

    Racing Hard tyres - 17,000cr
    NA Tuning Stage 1 - 5,000cr
    Sports ECU - 2,000cr
    Oil change - 250cr

    It was able to do all three Like the Wind races and win - though you might like to find an AI grid that doesn't include the Pescarolo C60 Hybride Judd 2005 for the SSR7 race.

    So I beat the last 2 races with a fully built 2014 GT-R Nismo, but having issues with Indy. It takes 4 laps just to reach 6th. Should I use a different car or is there a set up I can use for this car???

    I'd say get a wing and throw some downforce on it. I'd do about 25/75 f/r torque split and a mild suspension tune. I do t track tune or I'd give you one.

    I used the Auto Union Type C on Route X fully upgraded with custom transmission.

    Goes up to 293 mph without drafting when tuned right.

    So I abandoned the Nismo and used the Chevy/ Chaparral concept that you get free and tuned it down to 50.2% power and beat indy with 26 second lead and half the field lapped on lap 4

    The Mclaren MP-12C is fun to drive on SSR7 and SSRX.

    was kind of curious, why is it your requesting 'road car' specifically?
    You can use road/race/rally/gt300/gt500/LeMans, basically anything qualifies for 'Like the Wind'.

    I was going to suggest, if you were trying to save money, there is the anniversary R18 if you like those. Easy wins.
    Praiano has a decent set up if you dont have yours tuned yet.

    I would think a fully tuned GT-R would do the job.

    Or a Supra RZ?

    I won by a landslide with a Lamborghini Aventador fully tuned and with gearbox set to 298mph.

    I won two of these easily with the Bugatti Veyron...but had to use the Mercedes Sauber for Indy. Just couldn't get anything better than 3 with the Veyron on that track.

    De-tune the chapperal you could have gotten for free. Wins very easily.

    I won using Lamborghini Aventador with ease, and I use it on B-Spec races to rack some money. I don't recomend using it though.

    With the update they just put out, you can use b-spec and set it to the highest pace level there is and then sit back. I finished all 5 laps in 3:33:625 without even touching the controller and with the 200% modifier that makes for good easy money. I've found that the Chevrolet chaparral 2X is the best car for this as it hits the same top speed no matter the power level.

    Was pretty easy with a Ford GT.

    The V8 TT M5 is in GT6 right? Ill get that car and fully mod to see if it can run with LMP cars.

    What i found works best is @shmogt 's tune for the pagani huayra. Go to teamshmo.com and go to track and click the huayra and there is a top speed tune where my b spec drivers best lap on ssrx was a 3:58.691 if i remember the .*** correctly.
